The signup for the notification of the preorder of Vampire: The Masquerade 5th edition.

You can sign up here.  Pre-orders of the Fifth Edition of Vampire: The Masquerade start Saturday April 28th; those books will ship in August.  I have signed up to be notified of the reminder to pre-order, with absolute good will on my part: Ken Hite is the Lead Designer for that product, so let me just go get my credit card out.  It’s much simpler that way, really.

PS: No, no Kickstarter.  Apparently they don’t need the funding. Or the built-in early order infrastructure.

Tour de Lovecraft Volume 2 getting Kickstarted next month.

Volume 1 of Tour de Lovecraft is useful and insightful*.  The news that a second volume will be Kickstartered next month is welcome news. Ken Hite:

Particularly since I don’t think that I’ve actually read Ken’s Lost in Lovecraft’s stuff. Always nice to hear that there’s new material to read on the horizon, hey?

*Although six hundred dollar for a print copy sounds absurd.  So absurd, in fact, that I’m not going to try to flog my own copy for that kind of money. I mean, geez, it’s ten bucks on the Kindle.

@kennethhite will be Lead Designer for the new Vampire: the Masquerade.

Alternate title: Everything’s gonna be OK, folks.  Ken Hite would have had the authorial and editorial chops to do this even before Night’s Black Agents came out; and getting that one out and acclaimed makes him the best choice.  And I am kind of pleased to see that it’s going to be Vampire: the Masquerade again. I had no real objections to Vampire: the Requiem, but it never caught fire with me. (more…)

In the Mail: Goodnight Azathoth.

I am fairly embarrassed that I somehow missed Ken Hite’s and Christina Rodriguez’s Goodnight Azathoth. Sloppy of me, really. Oh, well, my oversight was easily fixed.

FINALLY: Ken Hite’s “The Cthulhu Wars” comes out tomorrow

Can’t make Ken Hite’s  The Cthulhu Wars: The United States’ Battles Against the Mythos Book of the Week, because I did so already back in January. Of 2015. Yes, I have been waiting for this book for something that feels like forever. And there was a point where I was hearing that it wasn’t getting published at all. But that was apparently bad information.  Good information is that it’s being released tomorrow, and Amazon is shipping it now so that I get it tomorrow. Because Amazon knows me too well.

…Some people think that Amazon does know us all too well, mind you. But what are you going to do? Free shipping with Prime, folks. Free shipping with Prime. (more…)

My PJ Media interview with Ken Hite of the Dracula Dossier is up!

Links (including the audio of the interview) here.  Short version: mixing vampires, spies, and Dracula works well, in a gaming context. Almost… too well.

Book of the Week: Tour De Lovecraft.

If you haven’t read Tour de Lovecraft The Tales, then… One hundred and eleven bucks on Amazon!?! That much? Ken, for the love of God: put out a new edition! Oh, don’t worry: the Kindle version is eight bucks.  If you’re looking for a good survey on H.P. Lovecraft’s works, this is what you want to read.

And so, adieu to… I don’t know; should I try to sell my copy?  I don’t need the money, but that is a ludicrous sum.  Sorry.  adieu to Reaper Man.

Book of the Week: The Cthulhu Wars.

This one is speculative, because it won’t be out until June: but The Cthulhu Wars: The United States’ Battles Against the Mythos (Dark) has two powerful things going for it.  One, it’s written by Ken Hite; and two, it’s being published by Osprey Publishing, as part of their Hey, wait, there’s a Hell of an overlap between the people who buy our straight-up illustrated historical military surveys and the science fiction/fantasy/horror crowd new line of books. So I figure that this one should be a good read, too.

Adieu, A Dangerous Energy. You were weird, but not forgotten.

Why @SkeptInquiry can’t have nice things.

If the Skeptical Inquirer is seriously publishing articles like this winner, well, you may want to reconsider that. “This winner” being a remarkably obtuse review of Ken Hite’s The Nazi Occult; apparently the fellow is worried that people might take this book seriously.

Yeah, I know. It’s the Internet: you must expect somebody to miss the point, I suppose.
